Go it alone...
Running is the ultimate activity for people who need space from people.
Time alone with your thoughts is very precious in this day and age - running solo gives you that. I've never experienced a better way to find clarity when I'm stressed, or problem solve when there are lots of projects on the go.
Leave the phone at home (at least some of the time) and learn to love the freedom.
but a crew is good too.
Because there's nothing like a bit of healthy competition to keep you honest, and distance is easy when you've got someone to chat to.
Run with different people for different reasons - motivation (for you, or them), friendship, business meetings.
In WA I run regularly with #PerthRunCollective, a community run club with paces for all levels, and would love to hear about like minded national and international crews. Let me know via the links below!
